Lomlou July !>;.?The first account of what probably was the actual mur d?w oi Belle ?ssere, ?rife of Dr Haw Harvey Crippea, formerly of Hrooklyn, was obtained through the efforts ?>f Scotland Tard detectlres, While the police In New York and other Americas ports were searching every Im ? unship for Dr. Crip pea, who is ?juapected of the murder, Siotlaml Yard was busy trying to "re? construct" the crime. In this they re ? ? rr?d Important aid from a woman keeping a small shop near 39 Hllldrop Bt, North London ft was here that the CrippSB* re? sided. It wa? here. In the cellar, that the battered body, believed to be that of Ike Basic hall actress, was found, burled in quick Urn?-. And it was In this ?ollar that the murder was com? mitted. If the account. obtalne?l from the neighbor Is correct. Since the discovery of the body on Wednesday night ami th?? ?lisappear anee of Dr. Crlppcn and his typist, Miss Ethel Clare I^neve, the Scot? land Yard detective? have Inquired diligently among those living In the vicinity of the Crippen home for some Information that would throw light on the domestic habits and relations of the American doctor ami his actress wife. Nothing helpful was learn??.! until the proprietress of a small shop at the rear of the Crippen home told of hear? ing a woman's screams ami pleas for These weird and awful sounds seeaeed t?> ? ome from Ike cellar in which the burned and mutilated body was later found. Mrs, Crtppea disappeared In Febru? ary last. It was four or five months ago when Ike screams were heard, the woman said H?-r shop overlooks a little garden back of the Crippen home. "I had often heard revolver practice In the garden," said the akopkeeper "One night about four or live months ago, I cannot place the time n.?>-*> ex actly, I was awakened by a woman's cries. It was midnight. The screams appeared to come from Dr. Crippen's house. "I listened and heard a woman's voice pleading: "Don't, oh don't!" To me It seemed that the cries were from a woman In the basement of the house occupied by Dr. and Mrs. Crippen. "A* nothing developed further I soon forgot the occurrence and did: not recall It until I learned of the tragic discovery." This account of a fierce struggle foi life was borne out apparently by the finding, also In the cellar where the body was unearthed, of a revolver. This discovery gave rise to the theory that Mrs. Crippen, the vaudeville art 1st, had been shot before the bo.lv was battered Into an unreoognlzazle I mass and burled In quicklime. The woman's naratlve and the find lng of the revolver are considered by' the police a* most significant ami ai dovetailing exactly. Earthquake In Italy. Messina, Sicily. July ifl?
